Yep, that is about how I am feeling right now. With the roller coaster of temps here in St. Louis (0 degrees to 70 and back again – several times now; and yesterday up to 50 from 0 just a few days ago and back down in the 20’s again today,) I have developed one heck of a cold. And since I have no one here to whine to — “Whiiiiiiiine.” That feels better. No one to send for that all important juice and soda required for sick bed side table. I spent most of yesterday under the covers on my couch either asleep or watching mindless daytime tv. I plan to do pretty much the same today after a few important errands.
This morning I finally did what I should have done yesterday – I took a long hot shower. Yea, it seems a little hypocritical to complain about my high water usage in one blog and then talk of taking a long shower in the next – but I figure that when I am sick, all altruistic goals go right out the window – when I’m sick I just think about meeeeeeeee! Anyway, that felt really good!
I did plug the tub this morning to catch the shower water for use in the toilet – and even with my extra long shower the water level never got passed the big bone that sticks out on the side of the foot right below the ankle (the brain is a little dead at the moment.)
Shortly I will head to the grocery store and get some more tissues (disposable – yep, blow and throw) and the necessary juice and soda, and anything that I think will help me feel better, and I will get back to worrying about the environment a little more tomorrow.
